The year'sÂ most popularÂ education technology video blog entries.
The EmergingEdTech video channel was very successful in 2011, with subscribership growing steadily and total views now well over 40,000. Based on traffic volume since posting, and focusing on videos that are relatively “self contained” (as opposed to vlog entries which have limited content and are focused onÂ encouraging viewers to read the companion article on the site), these were the EmergingEdTech videos that most captured viewer's interests this year.
The iPad was the stand out star of the video channel this year, with related vlog entries earningÂ three of the topÂ slotsÂ (with over 10,000 views between them!). Further evidence thatÂ the Apple tablet totally changedÂ the flounderingÂ tablet device niche in 2011, finally raising itÂ to fullÂ legitimacy.
Rounding out the top five we have a listing of Facebook Pages worth checking out if you're an educator or education technologist, and the site's first video interview (more of these are planned for 2012).
